Authlogics Windows Desktop Logon Agent

The Authlogics Windows Desktop Logon Agent provides a simple, reliable way to replace the Windows password during the CTRL+ALT+DELETE process when logging onto Windows workstations and servers, without impacting the Windows security model. It can also be use to improve security by adding Multi-Factor Authentication to the Windows desktop logon process.

Installation and deployment can be fully automated and the agent continues to work in offline mode when disconnected from the network. Active Directory Group policy provides flexible, centralised management together with the Authlogics Authentication Server.

How It Works

The Windows Desktop Logon agent is a lightweight software component that installs on Windows desktops and servers to significantly improve the logon security and experience of Windows. The agent supports all the use case scenarios which Windows supports with a password, e.g. online, offline and network access. It caches MFA logon metadata from the Active Directory to allow users to logon 100% offline with all MFA methods, just like you would with a password logon. Furthermore, the agent allows for a fully passwordless logon to Windows.
